    RIP Regis Philbin

    To me this one isn't so much a "awwww I will miss him" as much as it is a "how could he be old enough to die?!?!"

    Wait... he was 88. I swear, he was still a prominent TV host like 5 years ago, wasn't he? (I checked and it was 2011, it just feels like more recent than that).

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    RIP Regis. Somewhat on topic: Dana Carvey is running out of living people to impersonate.

    Andy Rooney (d. 2011)
    Casey Kasem (d. 2014)
    Mickey Rooney (d. 2014)
    John McLaughlin (d. 2016)
    George Michael (d. 2016)
    Garry Shandling (d. 2016)
    Abe Vigoda (d. 2016)
    George H. W. Bush (d. 2018)
    Robin Leach (d. 2018)
    Ross Perot (d. 2019)
    Kirk Douglas (d. 2020)
    Regis Philbin (d. 2020)

    I'd worry about Paul McCartney, but Dana Carvey has also impersonated Dick Cheney and Keith Richards, both of whom will live forever.

    I suspected somebody would post this. Prolly too soon, don't you think?

    RIP Regis. For whatever reason I have always been a huge fan - I vividly recall watching his morning show in NY before it went national, even though I was a kid at the time. He always struck me as a very down-to-earth, genuinely nice guy who could laugh at himself, a skill that is not appreciated enough in the world today. He will be missed.

    I loved Who Wants to be a Millionaire. The music was probably cheesy, but I rooted like hell for the contestants and couldn't turn an episode off. Regis was brilliant at his craft in everything he did.
